Globes from the George Glazer Gallery are the central display in the unusual new shop Partners & Spade in Greenwich Village and formed the photogenic backdrop for a number of photographs appearing in articles about the opening of the store. Partners & Spade is organized as "a collection of collections that invites gallery owners, designers, artists, and creatives to share their work and collections," according to The Scout, and has received a lot of media attention. The New York Observer published a profile of Andy Spade, noting, "In their store you can also buy one of collector George Glazer’s old globes, which range from $175 to $14,800." A selection of the news photos which feature our globes are shown on this page. The are from:

The New York Times, which featured Partners & Spade in its Fashion & Style "Pulse" section with a slide show on its web site that shows a view of the store with globes at the center. The Times describes the shop as "a gallery-cum-concept shop filled with cool, clever -- and...occasionally oddball -- art objects, curated installations and vintage curios," and recommends it for when you need to find "a gift for someone who has everything" (photo below).

Photo accompanying the New York magazine feature with this comment by Andy Spade about item 6: "The big globe is from the boardroom of Cartier ($14,000, the highest-priced item in the store, which is why it hasn't sold!). They all come from George Glazer, a specialist." Photo by Devon Jarvis.

Inspired by their store on Great Jones Street in the NoHo neighbourhood of lower Manhattan, Spade and Sperduti personally curated their collections and transformed the atrium of Lane Crawford, a Hong Kong department store, into "a space of discovery, a place where every visit is distinct and unique." The boutique showcases art, objects, and unusual pieces, including globes from the George Glazer Gallery (center of white table). It opened in late May, with a reception in June attended by a chic crowd -- read more on Lane Crawford's web site.
